Space Heater SafetyNeed to take some of the chill out of the air in a drafty workspace? A propane heater could give you the added warmth you need. But if you’re getting a propane space heater, here are some tips to use it safely from CampSafe.org.

Get the Right Kind
There are two kinds of propane space heaters. Outdoor-safe models are great for worksites and tailgate parties, but don’t have the proper ventilation systems for indoor use. Bringing one of these inside can cause a risk of deadly CO poisoning. Make sure the heater you buy says “indoor-safe.” These types automatically shut off if the airflow is at an unsafe level.

Read the Safety Instructions
When you’re dealing with indoor heating, it’s best to give the owner’s manual a read so you don’t skip necessary safety precautions.

Know the Symptoms of CO Poisoning
These include nausea, headache, and dizziness. If you think you may be affected, turn off the heater, get out of the house and call 911.

Turn off the Heat
Never use a space heater while you’re asleep or leave it unattended.
